Turned up to skim a garage that customer had boarded themselves.. this is the son in law of someone I've plastered the whole house of.. with no issues, lovely customers.

After seeing the mess he left I decided to tell them politely it wasn't good enough and I won't be plastering it..

Blocked him as he wouldn't let the conversation end, so he then starts texting me calling me a wimp and if the jobs out of my league then that's not his problem!

Got to laugh really.. was fuming this morning.

Sympathies, he's clearly a peeny-pinching dickhead and unable to accept advice or keep his mouth shut. I'd want to deck him aswell or kick holes in his shitty plasterboard.
You might want to call the parental in laws to keep them on-side and explain he's an dickhead who likes to kick off as a defence for his cock-ups

I was tempted to leave his number up on the pictures but thought better of it, such an attitude though.. maturity of a teenager the gobby c**t.

I've straightened out some chappy boarding before but this was by far the worst.. pictures never do it justice.

Agree, absolutely disgraceful for thinking you would “just get over” that shite but why not just charge him extra for putting it all right?

Can't you tell from the messages that he's the sort that can't see why it would cost more to put right?
I'd have walked from that one.
Just what I was going to say mate.. he thinks there's nothing wrong with it.

He didn't even ask if I could sort it, no apology and 'sorry mate, I've not done any boarding before.. can you sort it, I'll pay the extra'..

He just starts insulting me, funny thing is, it was only last night he was offering me more work up South Croydon as he's a window fitter.. so he was that keen on using me yet he has a mate he knows that's laughing at the fact I don't want to go over his s**t boarding.. and his mate will do it for him..

So why didn't you use your mate from the start? Oh.. he doesn't exist does he.

I'm laughing now but this morning was so angry, he's a nasty piece of work.. worst customer I've dealt with to date! Rather sit at home than deal with a c**t like that.

Charge him extra?

I think we all know he'd be lucky to get paid fully even without extra charges on top.

Don't be angry - be relieved - you dodged a bullet. It was a wasted, but lucky, day.

Working for that kind of small-minded, never-wrong, self-entitled prick would've been a nightmare even if he'd boarded it perfectly.

I think it's quite likely the father-in-law is secretly all too aware of what a cnt his daughter married.

Doubt it's true, but even if it is true, it'll be a thankless task.



He's really desperate to save face, isn't he?

"Got more front than Brighton", as DelBoy would say.
I know mate, I couldn't bring myself to read his messages.. would wind me up too much l, don't want to be drawn into a slagging match, I don't go to work for a scrap, don't have any time for people like that.

Although I have been thinking up something to respond with to press his buttons one last time I'm not going to lie.
